The Superbowl is a funny one here in the UK, some people embrace it (like our very own Matt Hurley who dedicates a whole day to it), some of us catch the best bits on YouTube and others let it pass by without too much acknowledgement. But as a brand and marketing agency, it is hard to ignore the impact that even just the adverts have. From being an inconvenient interruption to our viewing, they have become part of the excitement and a huge talking point.

Another advert extravagant enough to match the atmosphere of the Superbowl, was the ‘Morning Run’ milk advert featuring The Rock.
